Carleton 82, Victoria 67

Carleton 6'5" sophomore Tyson Hinz had the best offensive performance of his young career with over 30 points as the Ravens capture their tournament championship for the umpteenth year in a row.  More to follow...

The final score does not indicate how tough a game this really was for the Ravens.
Unlike the previous two games, Carleton did not storm out to a big early lead, primarily because of the Vikes resolute commitment to team defense.
In fact, Carleton and Victoria had several lead changes in the first quarter.
Eventually, Carleton did build a nine point half time lead 41-32, but Victoria came out in the third on a 10-2 run and cut the lead to 43-42. For the rest of the quarter it was all the Ravens could do to fend off the Vikes as their lead was cut to five, 57-52 after 30 minutes.
Only in the 4th quarter when the visitors seemed to tire a bit did Carleton put some distance between themselves and their opponents.
A 25-15 4th quarter score put it away but not without a few anxious moments.
Tyson Hinz had a monster game with a career high (so far) 30 points and was named MVP.
Carleton was once again without 5th year guard Mike Kenny, who is apparently dealing with a serious health issue that has yet to be fully diagnosed.
Hopefully, Mike will be able to resume playing shortly.
